    Hello! Any other bikepackers hang here?

    Hi folks,

    Finally registered and thought I'd introduce myself. Got into hammocking when I started doing a few backcountry bikepacking trips in the BC Rockies. The light weight, packability and comfort after a day in the saddle all led me to invest in a Hennessey hammock.

    Any other bikepackers out here?

    Cheers,

    Coach

    and eventually there just might be a bikepackinghammocking

    Folder to ease all the searching you'll have to do to find all the stuff that is spread out.
    You will find quite a few of us have bikecamped and used a hammock along the way.
    Anyway welcome to the forum. It is a good one.

    Thanks for the welcome. Good to see some other bikers here. Looking forward to exploring the site a bit. Here's a shot of my rig from my first bikepacking trip:

    Not really bike packing, more bike touring or car camping with the bike replacing the car, but yes...I camp from a bike. Reasonably frequently. Of course, my bike would make anyone trying to ride singletrack...or cover big miles...or be a weight weenie...cringe...

    Welcome! You'll like it here!
